3DSwym Communities

3DSwym lets you connect with members of your communities to collaborate, ask and answer questions, and share information.

Using 3DSwym, you can access the following communities:
  • 3DEXPERIENCE Platform private communities that your organization creates, and require 3DPassport credentials.
  • 3DSwym communities such as product and support areas for all Dassault Systèmes customers. These public communities are also accessible in a Web browser from swym.3ds.com.
Communities create a permanent repository of information that is stored as topics and comments, and you can access them either from the application (SOLIDWORKS, eDrawings, or DraftSight) or a Web browser.
You can use the commands built in to the 3DSwym communities area. For example, when working with blogs or iQuestions, you can:
  • Add a screen clipping of the graphics area.
  • Attach the current active model.
  • Attach a file.
  • Add an image of the desktop.
3DSwym Communities panel include:
